I agree with your concerns on using the org.apache namespace. I just copied
Adam's mailing list submission (which used org.apache....) verbatim into the
base-implementations module. I would guess that we would use
net.sourceforge.ant_contrib namespaces for the unified task. If ever picked
up by official Ant, it would only require a global search and replace.

My suggestion was net.sf instead of net.sourceforge, I like it shorter

Should be a simple case of <regexpreplace>.
Yet another point: Should ant-contrib be restricted to stuff that at
least potentially can become part of Ant or is the aim something
broader. Specifically, is the ASF license the only possible license
for files in ant-contrib or can we mix licenses (as long as we don't
create a common distribution).
When I first added the regexp support to Ant, I wrote adapters for
gnu.regexp as well, which clearly cannot be written without (also)
making them available under the LGPL.
